Hot Docs – Rowdy Girl film screening

April 29 @ 8:00 pm

some free tickets are available- email us at animalrightstoronto@gmail.com

Unable to come to terms with the cruel reality of animal agriculture, a former Texas cattle rancher goes vegan and transforms her husband’s beef operation into a farmed animal sanctuary. When their story goes viral, she realizes her true calling: to help farmers transition to plant-based and end their business of animal agriculture. “Rowdy Girl” showcases the inspiring work of an animal activist who has been on both sides and proves that there is a common ground between farmers and vegans – a shared mission of compassion and sustainability.
